Venus and Jupiter This Morning, November 16, 2012

Morning Planets Venus and Jupiter shine brightly during early morning twilight today as seen in the accompanying images from Fairfield County, Ohio.

Brilliant Venus passed closest to the star Spica this morning, although Spica is lost in the bright twilight in the above image. Venus continues its rapid orbital motion and rises far south of east during November mornings.

Bright Jupiter shines in the western sky during morning twilight as seen in the accompanying twilight, nearly 130 degrees from Venus.
